Some couples need a jump-start in repairing their relationship, especially if there has been infidelity. I offer THREE-DAY INTENSIVES, where you are able to get in 4-6 months of therapy in 3 days. For some, this is a marriage saver when it seems all hope is lost.

The morning starts with kite flying and boat races. A lantern festival and culture performances dominate the afternoon. With such a full day of action, traditional Asian food is available to festival goers. Children can also participate in arts and crafts and education activities. Part of the goal of the event is to educate people about the ancient origins of dragon boating, kite flying and lanterns. The boats are powered by 24 member teams. Dragon boating is one of the fastest growing water sports in the country and is over 2,000 years old. Kites were invented in China and used for communication in battle. Lanterns are the first portable light source known and are important parts of holiday celebrations. This is just a taste of the information that is available at the event.

Marriage and Family Mental Health in Irving

Being a single mother brings with it many unique challenges which can affect mental health. For those who are still of school-age, overcoming the obstacles necessary to get an education can seem impossible. The vast majority of pregnancies at this age are unplanned, and strategizing for the future often takes a backseat to coping with the present.2 The Irving Independent School District Teenage Pregnant and Parenting Students (TAPPS) program helps young mothers overcome those challenges. TAPPS is a comprehensive drop out prevention program aimed at helping parenting and pregnant students stay in classes and receive their diplomas through Compensatory Education Home Instruction, child care assistance, transportation, and more. For more information about the TAPPS program, call (972) 600-5000.3
